Sleek Pout Paints Mini Review + Pictures

My favorite English woman ever, Robyn, kindly sent me a goodie package recently... and guess what was inside?


Along with other bits which I'll show later, she got me Pinkini, Peek-a-Bloo and Mauve Over.


Left to right: Pinkini, Mauve Over, Peek-A-Bloo

These retail for £4.99 (or $8 USD) and sell at Superdrug. They go on 3 for 2 occasionally, so keep your eyes peeled.

Ingredients:
Polyisobutene, Polybutene, Ricinus communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Bees Wax, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Silica, Butylated Hydroxy Anisole, Glycol Distearate, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond Oil), ,Octyl Palmitate, Ascorbyl Palmitate, tocopheryl Acetate, Squalane, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexyiglycerin, Fragrance
May Contain: Titanium Dioxide Cl 77891, D&C Red 6 Cl 15850, D&C Red 7 Cl 15850, D&C Red 27 Cl 45410, FD&C Yellow 5 Cl 19140, FD&C Blue 1 Cl 42090, Iron oxides (Cl 77499, Cl 77492)

They've done an across the board list for all colors instead of including colorants in each one. While I don't mind it, I know some people want to know what colorants are in each individual shade, as some people have allergies and need to avoid certain ones. 

These do have a slight fragrance, it's lemon but not in your face. I hate the smell of lemons and I can tolerate the smell of these, so it's really not that overpowering.

The purpose of these is a smooth lip gloss that applies with the opacity of a lipstick. Now, you may be wondering why someone wants a blue lipgloss... but the purpose of these is for mixing, as well as wearing alone. They even have a white in the range, which would lighten any of the other shades. 

The applicator is a tiny little squeeze tube hole, which is great for squeezing out a small amount onto a lip brush. You literally need a pin-head sized amount for your entire mouth -- these are VERY pigmented. The amounts shown in the swatches would probably cover my lips three or four times over.

So far, I really like these. It's a mini review as I haven't tested them too much yet -- but these have serious staying power from what I can tell. I mostly wanted to show you swatches and a few colors I came up with (as usual, top is natural light, bottom is flash):

Pinkini



Mauve Over



Peek-A-Bloo



Mauve Over + Peek-A-Bloo




Pinkini + (little) Mauve Over + Peek-A-Bloo



Pinkini + (little) Peek-A-Bloo



Pretty cool, huh? I can't wait to get Pinup (Red), Lava (Orange) and Cloud 9 (White) to make more colors! I wish I had gotten the white the first time around, as it would have been helpful to lighten up some of the darkness in the shades I made. Lilac lips, here I come!

In case you were wondering what I look like with the Mauve Over + Peek-A-Bloo mixture:


My big 'ol head, for your enjoyment.

Hope you enjoyed, and I hope you check out the Pout Paints if you can -- I think they're great fun and would also be good for makeup artists!
